Purse Search Ireland is an exciting fisheries conservation project that involves public participation, so that means you can take part! The project is basicly a massive nationwide search for mermaids' purses, the eggcases of sharks, skates and rays. We're hunting for these eggcases because they can provide valuable information on the location of nursery areas for Ireland's skates and rays. Information on nursery areas is crucial for effective conservation management and protection of vulnerable species. It's also important for the sustainable development of our fisheries.
